Not only did Todd Morgan and Cindy Jones join Jack Russell

Commissioner Cindy Jones made the motion to approve the Capital Budget with the 5.4 million dollar project included. Only Commissioner Danny Morris and I remained true to our long standing commitment to protect quality of life and the interests of the majority of working and retired taxpayers.
